Tent card challenge

Good morning friends
today I am going to show you a card I made for a challenge over at Crafty Sprouts.  Erika used to be on the Getting Cricky design team and has since moved on and has been doing a great job on her blog.  She has created a bi-weekly challenge and boy am I having a ball entering them.  Plus she has a video tutorial to go with each challenge and that helps me A LOT at times!!!  I am a visual designer sometimes and this one was really fun to make.  I didn't get as elaborate as Erika did, but I showed it to my neighbor lady and she really seemed to like it.  She also gave me a few more ideas I am going to try to make.
The tent card was super easy to make and all the instructions are on Erika's blog here.  
I got the cute little praying girl at SVG cuts.  Isn't she so cute?  I also used the I'm here for YOU stamp from the Fashionable Friends set and added a flower with a little bit of bling.  Wouldn't this make such a great FRIEND in need card?  SO the challenge is open until 8/18, so hurry and create a tent card and enter to win.
